A great big “Get Well Soon” goes out to our good friend, former Somerville Firefighter now better well known as Attorney Cindy Snow Murphy! Cindy who is home on the mend recovering after a bad fall is an avid reader of “The News.” Cindy is a strong person and we know that she will be back on her feet real soon so we wish her all the best for a speedy recovery!
We’re hearing that the lead investigator that was on the DPW Garage scandal case is now off the case and going to an academy. We hope that the new guy or gal whoever it may be that will be under the new chief’s command realizes that some very important people above in another agency already have a decision on what direction that they think this scandal took when it began and know the case inside out but had to stand down while the local police were called in by the mayor’s office to conduct an investigation on evidence discovered. We’ve been hearing that the other agency is just waiting for Somerville investigators to release their findings and then hopefully not to embarrass them of anything that they may have missed! Many eyes are on this case except our own alderman who seem to either be very tight lipped or out of the loop. We will just have to see how this plays out and where it ends up.

Regarding the “Daddy’s New Heart Fund please read the little daughter’s letter and your eyes begin to water a bit, and then please turn to page 26 and save the date for the fundraiser. Every little bit helps! Here’s the letter: Please support DADDY’S BIG HEART FUND. All proceeds from this fund will benefit DBHF. The primary mission of the fund is to help our dad and others with financial support to cover medical and personal needs associated with receiving an artificial and/or heart transplant.
About our Dad
Ten (10) years ago, dad was diagnosed with restrictive cardio-myopathy. This condition has resulted in a progressive deterioration
in his health. In April 2013, he was placed on the official heart transplant registry and is currently waiting for a new heart to become available. However, his condition has worsened and for the past two months he has been a patient at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, where on October 20, 2013, he received an artificial heart transplant.
Successful fundraising is essential to helping our dad and other families cover enormous expenses associated with this costly operation(s). We sincerely appreciate your contributions on behalf of DBHF.
To donate, please visit us at http://www.daddysbigheartfund.com .
